New year resolutions

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.
Benjamin Franklin

WISHING YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY 2010 !!

Last year I took some resolutions here..now I am going to introspect did I follow them

Firsts was never to complain..I couldn't do it so well...some people tried my patience and won .I tried my best to take the worst in my stride, but couldnt and failed myself.

Acceptance and acknowledgement... Here I have progressed a little, Except rudeness , I have got enough acceptance, for everything else. And yes I acknowledge everything and everybody in life, thinking that it will bring some good, but sometimes it happens that if you acknowledge some mandatory things, people may think that they are too good and not the person who is feeling grateful for small things , so it may backfire...now i will have to be careful in my praise also:)

genuine..that I am always , everywhere, could never be a hypocrite..to me speaking sweetl…

AFTER THE BREAK

After a long time, this was another long break I took from blogging, due to my daughter's visit. She has gone back, and I am back here to do stock taking:)......

Last week was so hectic what with alt the cooking, going out a, shopping etc...I always go out of the way for everything..almost always beyond my capacity ..and still feel that I couldnt do much or anything..There is always that dish I couldnt cook, or that particular dress or gift i couldnt buy for her/him...why it happens? sometimes I feel like complaining to god, why he has made the parents all from heart, no mind?.....They need more of a mind than heart to live peacefully.

We went to GRTRangnathan street, and all of us were amazed to see a shop selling jwellery and crowded like a vegetable market...people jostling with each other, though its a multi storey large building..this one store must be having a bigger turnover than some companies even.

Big boss also ended with a whimper....one thing i dont understand about t…

HAPPY TIMES

Last week my daughter and SIL came, my nephew also came from VIT and we had a good time talking , eating and going out. We took them to Mahabalipuram ,and to Muttukadu also for boating. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Muttukadu...everything has changed, earlier here I wrote about it, and today they had a nice restaurant and all tourists were given life jacket while boating.I was laughing also that see this happens when I write:).

Last week I met Jayshree also at Tapas Bar, and really enjoyed our tete a tete, her little daughter is very cute. 2 weeks back Smriti also came to my house, I met her earlier also in Hyderabad, and now she has become a family to me, So far I have met three people thru my blog and it has been a very enriching experience to me. Thanks to blogging I got few friends.

And now I have praised Cafe Tapas so much that my daughter is waiting to go there:) and have cheese toast. and the advantage is its very near to our place.

Whenever my children come they take m…

When to have kids?

In my last post I wrote about so many things, but nobody read or reacted about anything other than gender bias,and it shows that relationships are the most popular topic for everyone. I got an anonymous reaction also and a strong one, but I didnt publish that, because I feel if someone has something strong to say ,be brave to put your name to it. But still I will clarify my stand, I would like to state categorically that in my post...
I never ever undermined boys, on the contrary i always say that today boys are getting short changed, and personally my son is the best, gem of a person, and to me both daughters and son are equal, I rather wanted to say that to prove their equality I couldnt undermine the son...
My son always stands up for the right thing and person and I have always respected and valued his opinion and still do.and those who have been reading my blog for some time will know how precious he is to me.
As for equality in Pooja...somebody has to do it first, if the girls …

OH MY GOD!

This Saturday we went to my H's alumni meet..I just go for good food and good music, as I dont get to meet and talk many people..because I know none and people here are sort of reserved...that way I miss my last apartments crowd, people there had a class of their own, They always made me feel sop welcome and one of their own..Since this time the venue was Accord Metropolitan,it was also an incentive to see a new place. The hotel is good in ambiance but food was bad..not a single dish was worth it..One thing I have seen that here north Indian food preparations are rarely good anywhere, so why not keep it traditionally south only, I prefer that instead of eating rubber like paneer and watery gravy, and special dinner without dahibhalla or raita is unimaginable to me . But we had good DJ :)..so I enjoyed the music and felt sad to see that so many foot tapping numbers he played but none of the young crowd came on the floor..when he played..kajraare, I remembered how in Delhi, we coul…

MY heart is beating......

I was reading those one words tag and noticed one thing that whenever anybody is asked about mother everybody says..an angel...and I thought that with so many angels in the world why its so full of hurts, miseries, deceit and painful things....so what is it?

Is it like my mother is an angel and yours..........

or the mothers are angel to their children only,not for the rest of the world ......

Why a women cant be an angel, why only mother?

why cant we behave well in general?

why ? why? why?

I for one would feel very proud if people unrelated to me find me good and my children, instead of giving me a high pedestal( may be its a case of sour grapes:), would themselves behave in a way where everyone will say what a good upbringing they had, to make me feel proud. A company is always known for its products:) why not we broaden our horizon, where we just try to be a good human being and with that we can cover all our relationships also and make the world beautiful to live in.
Most of the pro…
